So I have been thinking of starting a little blog for a while as an insight to our beautiful crazy world of raising three boys by the sea. I was even more inspired after reading about the Byron Bay Mums and the “Utopia” which social media has created, I then realised I believe this could be created anywhere and its the outlook on life which can create this feeling.
I do believe the Mid Coast of SA has its own little “Utopia” especially when small waves are lighting up the reef breaks on a summers day! But to be real unfortunately I do not have a bunch of mum friends to go surfing with to post all over instagram and its a lot of work to organise! But I enjoy sneaking in waves and beach trips with other friends and their families (we need the husbands on the beach) when the planets align and we can all make it down.
The beauty of the Mid Coast which is located on the Fleurieu Peninsula is that we have everything out our doorstep. Beautiful beaches, wineries, bakeries and my favourite little coffee shop. We can walk the double pram and children on bikes safely and can get to the beach very quickly.
A little about me: I am married with three kids. Before I was organising a chaotic house I was a person who enjoyed surfing, swimming, free time, avocado toasties, quick weekends away with the husband and little did I know I actually looked good in a bikini. These days I get excited when nappies are on sale, getting to school on time and doing the food shop alone.
We got married in 2014 in Bali on the cliff tops overlooking the beautiful Uluwatu Beach, we also have three team members each born two years apart: 2014, 2016 and 2018. So basically three babies in 4 years and now that it is 2019 and the eldest it 5 1/2 I no longer have three under 5.
We like to think of different ways of making the daily grind enjoyable. Please enjoy my thoughts and tips of managing the chaos and of course living the “Utopia” on the Mid Coast of SA.
